Colony House Revs Up Knoxville!


Colony House Revs Up Knoxville!

Sunday, indie rock band, Colony House brought their tour to Knoxville’s historic Bijou Theatre with The New Respects opening, a show that undoubtedly kept the vibrant crowd up and out of their seats for the night.

For those unfamiliar with The New Respects, listen to them. Like now. This Tennessee quartet of young twenty-somethings brings a bright-eyed twist to indie rock with a blues, gospel, and motown inspired sound. The band is comprised of Jasmine Mullen–daughter of Christian singer Nicole C. Mullen–and her three cousins, Lexi, Zandy, and Darius Fitzgerald. With hits like Trouble and Something To Believe In, Colony House’s Fall Headline Tour isn’t The New Respects first tour. With over four years in the business, The New Respects have opened for Switchfoot and Robert Randolph & the Family Band as well.

Once The New Respects left the stage, the crowd was warmed up for Franklin-based quartet, Colony House. Known for their high-energy stage presence, the band had fans jumping in no time. Colony House has toured with fellow indie rock favorites including NEEDTOBREATHE, Ben Rector, Switchfoot, and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors and most recently performed at Moon River Music Festival in September. Playing fan favorites like, 1234, You & I, and Moving Forward, the Bijou ignited with people singing along–it was a true celebration of music and the emotion it brings!
